For the NPCs, the typical soldier is only 1-2 BP (and a 3 BP monster is considered "strong"), but you could reason that Heroes are the most exceptional examples of these individuals.

Yes, I think Guard Knights should be like the Elf (6 BPs, 3 spells/skills) but with better equipment (shield) as payment for having 1 Mind Point less. It is not a 100% balanced homebrew solution but it is more balanced than the official stats compared with the rest of heroes.

Kurgan wrote:I was going to say with so many BP, this Knight as a merc would be much more expensive... perhaps 3.5x the fee of an ordinary man-at-arms.

According to my homebrew difficulty calculation model, these Knights may cost 1.57 times the official NA price of a Swordman mercenary (the one with the two handed sword, 100 coins), so around 160 gold coins, 3.14 times the official NA price of a Scout mercenary (50 coins).

SCENE:
A valiant Knight strides in, but with a slight limp.

Barbarian: What took you so long??

Knight: Sorry, I had a slight accident parking my horse outside (stretches with a grimace), still good to go!

Elf: Will you face goblins, "allied" orcs, skeletons, zombies, mummies, chaosdread warriors, fimirsabominations, gargoyles, the Witch Lord of Kalos, and the forces of evil generally speaking?

Knight: If there's a steady paycheck involved... I'll fight whatever you say!

Wizard: Great, you're hired! Welcome to the team... (reaches out his hand to shake)

Another important point for those Guardian Knights is they require a shield to be allowed to use two of their three skill cards so using two handed weapons like battle axe would be a bad choice for them so, I think this point weaks them a little bit and give some balance with the Barbarian or Dwarf if their BPs and MPs are changed to 6 and 3 respectively.

Keep looking, I see a few sites that have stock left (at least they did when I checked a couple of hours ago).

Yes I found a few sites that are posting a December or January release. Best Buy also has them (at least when I checked last night).

The skills are much weaker and restricted than the hero spells, so I think the Knight hero is not overpowered. He/she is pretty much balanced with the Elf, for instance.

I liked the character and hope they continue doing asymmetrical heroes like this.

It wouldn't surprise me if they did a release like this for the other three new heroes that were in the pulse campaign.

They need to make alternate gender heroes of the three new characters.Female orc bard anybody and males for the other two.they’ve already done it for the upcoming knights so why not the new 3 ?
